Speaker information

Prof Ann Florini, Professor of Public Policy, Singapore Management University, Professor Florini has spearheaded numerous international projects focused on innovative approaches to global problem-solving and governance, including the Study Group on Global Energy Governance at the National University of Singapore (2009-2011), the Global Governance Initiative on behalf of the World Economic Forum (2000-2005) and the International Task Force on Transparency, Initiative for Policy Dialogue, Columbia University (2000-2005).

Thousands of experiments are underway around the world in problem-solving via collaboration across government, business, and civil society. This path to peace and prosperity is now codified in the Paris climate accord and in the Sustainable Development Goals, which explicitly call for multi-stakeholder collaboration as key to implementation. Such collaboration is clearly essential, yet both theory and practice raise red flags that need to be addressed if the promise is to be realised.
